Certification Requirements

Required for certification for teaching mathematics in secondary schools:


The student must maintain a 2.50 grade point average in courses for the major in order to meet teacher certification requirements.

Mathematics Culminating Undergraduate Experience (CUE)

The CUE in mathematics provides each student with the opportunity to engage in an intellectually rigorous experience that draws upon knowledge acquired within the major, while allowing students flexibility to select the type of experience they pursue.  Each student who majors in mathematics will select one of the following options:

  1. Successfully complete one of the following three courses during the senior year: MTH 353 - CUE: Landmarks of Mathematics MTH 370 - CUE: The Art of Problem Solving , or MTH 975 CUE: Directed Research 
  2. Successfully complete MTH 353 - CUE: Landmarks of Mathematics  during any semester and successfully complete a certification in middle or secondary education, including completing a student teaching semester in mathematics in the senior year.

A student who takes MTH 353 - CUE: Landmarks of Mathematics  or MTH 370 - CUE: The Art of Problem Solving  previous to these last two semesters will not be able to count such a course as fulfilling the option (a) CUE requirement for the major.
